I've just been searching the internet for a date of composition on the Irving Berlin tune "I'll See You in Cuba".  When I search under the title, I get travel agencies that want to sell me airline tickets!!  Can anyone help me out on this one?  Based on the lyric, I think it has to be in the early days of Prohibition ("the season started last July, ever since the USA went dry").  Something in the back of my feeble mind says it was 1922, but advancing age makes me question that.

Thanks in advance for your help.
